    Default Side gate attached to colourbond fence

    Hi guys. I'm building a small side gate round the side of our house. Our boundary has a colourbond fence and where I want the gate line up with on of the fence posts. I was thinking of attaching timber to the colourbond post then hanging the gate on that. Is this OK to do? Trying to avoid needing to put in a fence post in the ground.

    I personally would not recommend it. The colorbond fence posts are not designed for that type of loading.

    I used a gal post around 50x35 in 3mm steel for mine with the colorbond post screwed into the side.
